Olive 06HD audiophile music server debuts

Olive is famous for its line of digital music servers. The company is also famous for some very expensive devices. The entry-level music server from Olive is about $1,000. With the cheapest offering being that expensive, you may be afraid to think what the company’s new flagship offering might go for.

Olive has unveiled the new 06HD Music Server that sits at the top of the company’s line. Being the top of the line means that the thing has the best components Olive offers. It has 24-bit sound and a fully balanced differential DAC. The touchscreen on top of the machine is 10.1-inches wide and shows album art and more.

The 06HD supports up to a 192kHz sample rate and promises 250 times more audio resolution than a CD offers. The DAC inside the machine is a matched pair of the best TI has to offer and has a signal-to-noise ratio of 124dB. The master clock has jitter of less than 10 picoseconds to eliminate jitter and the device up samples any audio standard to 24-bit/384kHz resolution. The limited quantity device has a 2TB internal HDD and can be purchased for $4,999.
